Caesar Salad Recipe

Here is the salad recipe
1. 2 cloves of garlic or one teaspoon of garlic powder
2. 1/2 cup of salad oil
3. 3/4 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
1 1/2 tsp of Worcestershire sauce
1 egg
2 tablespoons of lemon juice

Mix all ingredients in a container and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Pour dressing over salad, add croutons and sprinkle with parmesan cheese. I realize some people do not like to put raw egg into the recipe but I have been doing this for 25 years with no problem.

Just going to make a Caesar Salad and BBQ some rib steaks. Simple but very tasty. I will post my salad recipe later.

Stuffed Mushroom Caps

Here is a great recipe for an appetizer. These can be made ahead and kept in the fridge.
Stuffed Mushroom Caps

½ cup of fresh white breadcrumbs
½ cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
250g of ham chopped
½ cup of grated Swiss cheese
1 clove of garlic crushed
salt and pepper

Carefully remove stalks of mushrooms. Chop stalks and mix them with filling ingredients except for seasoning, lemon juice and oil.

Arrange mushroom caps in a buttered ovenproof dish. Season with a sprinkle of salt and pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice. Spoon filling evenly into caps, shaping a little. Sprinkle with olive oil and bake for about 10 minutes at 400F.
